Steelers | Bruener Running With Scout Team

Wed, 24 Sep 2003 23:32:20 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Mark Bruener continues to run with the scout team at practice, and might be a game-day scratch more often than not. The other backup tight end, Matt Cushing, is also the backup fullback, so Cowher likes to keep him active, leaving no room for Bruener, who is earning $800,000 to do little more than practice. He has dressed for just one game.

Wed, 27 Feb 2002 21:49:10 -0800

Updating an earlier story, the Post Gazette reports the Pittsburgh Steelers have given LB Joey Porter and RB Amos Zereoue one-year, $1,227,000 tender offers. Both will carry a first-round draft choice as compensation, if another team signs them to an offer sheet. The team's remaining five restricted free agents received the minimum one-year, $563,000 tender offers and all would carry the draft pick equal to the round they were drafted in as compensation. Those players and their draft pick compensation are: PK Kris Brown (7), OL Oliver Ross (5), TEs Matt Cushing (none) and Jerame Tuman (5). Cushing was not drafted. Exclusive-rights free agent FB Dan Kreider also received a $375,000 one-year contract tender from the team.

Steelers | Tenders Coming

Sat, 23 Feb 2002 21:21:07 -0800

The Tribune Review speculates the Pittsburgh Steelers may give restricted free agent LB Joey Porter and DL Aaron Smith might get a larger tender offer ($1.227 million) to protect them as their compensation would be a first-round draft pick. Four other restricted free agents, PK Kris Brown, backup RB Amos Zereoue, backup TE Jerame Tuman and backup OL Oliver Ross, might get the smallest tender ($563,000). Their compensation would be a draft pick in the round they were selected originally. In the case of those four players, that's a seventh (Brown), third (Zereoue) and fifth (Tuman and Ross). Two others, backup TE Matt Cushing and long snapper Mike Schneck may not be tendered.

Mon, 27 Aug 2001 21:21:29 -0700

As an update to previous stories, the Post Gazette reports the Pittsburgh Steelers now think FB Jon Witman (back) should be OK by the end of the week. Also, Dan Kreider might be ready to practice next week. Kreider has not practiced this summer since the "pop" he felt in his calf during a walk-through on July 20 turned out to be a torn muscle. Ron Jaynes will start at fullback against the Bills with converted TE Matt Cushing behind him.
